We’re boiling over with excitement for this one.
We probably would have exploded with joy already if we weren’t already “beta testing” the OUYA exclusive, TowerFall by Matt Makes Games.
Luckily, we have privileged access here at OUYA HQ and very soon (if not now, depending on when you’re reading this) you and the rest of the world will experience–and no doubt enjoy–what many are calling one of OUYA’s “Killer Apps.”
TowerFall is both simple and robust. It’s a breeze to pick up, and a bear to master. Pick one of four fantastical characters with special traits that will charm and surprise you.
Invite your friends over to play, and watch as things gets real crazy real fast — in a good way. :)
Master the zen of archery, and learn to execute a well-timed dodge. Pick up some bramble arrows to get prickly, or snag a couple bomb arrows and blow some shit up — all while your BFF glares at you with that familiar look of disgust you haven’t seen in years.
Ah, bonding. Remember when games brought friends together in real space and time? Pepperidge Farm remembers. And so does OUYA. And Matt Thorson.
Watch a vid of the action:
We’re happy to proclaim that TowerFall is perfect for couch gaming. So phone up those friends I mentioned, and throw an OUYA unboxing party. Just make sure you get to bed at a decent hour because some of you still have final exams tomorrow.
Until next time, Internet.

P.S. As an added bonus, TowerFall is immensely entertaining in “Training” mode. Give it a go, and try to beat Matt’s insanely low time records.
